Far-infrared heating is an efficient, safe, environmentally responsible, invisible range of light that can be transmitted from a special heating system and directly warm people and objects without first having to heat the air. Our technology allows this heat to be produced with an amazing 98%+ efficiency.
Traditional heating systems such as forced air, convective radiators, baseboard heaters and fan assisted systems, heat air using heating elements or a heat exchanger. The heated air then fills the space, warms our bodies and warms the objects in the room.
But from the moment air is heated and enters the space, the warmest air moves upwards and then begins to naturally cool. As the air cools, it creates cooler air currents that move towards the floor. Ironically, most traditional heating systems heat the ceiling best. Drafts from these systems also affect our overall comfort.
University research has cited that far-infrared heating is 55% to 80% more efficient, when measuring the total energy consumed to heat a given space (as compared with forced air gas heating).
University researchers have found that when comparing total energy expended to heat a house, far-infrared energy is about 55% to 80% more efficient than forced air, and about 15% more efficient than electrical baseboard heaters.
Far-infrared also has other advantages. The form factor means that sleek panels can be placed on the ceiling or wall of each room, as seen on this website. Because far-infrared is not visible, the emitters can be installed in mirrors and functional art.
In outdoor settings, far-infrared can warm outdoor entertainment and dining areas. The heat is not blown away in the wind, there are no gas tanks to change, and when installed properly, there are no uncomfortable hot spots.
